ACO will hold its 28th Annual Underwood New Music Readings for emerging composers on Thursday and Friday, May 23 and 24, 2019. Six composers will hear ACO perform their work live for the first time, receive personalized mentorship, and an archival recording. Two composers will receive a commission for a work to be performed by ACO in an upcoming season: one will  be selected by the panel of mentor composers and one will be selected as the Audience Favorite through an audience survey.

The Readings are open to the public for a nominal admission price. Stay-tuned for more details to be announced in early 2019.
